Mother’s Day is a holiday that honors moms. The date varies in different countries, but in the United States is held on the second Sunday in May. Some Christians recoil at the commercialization of the celebration, but most church make a point to honor moms. My church usually plans a Baby Dedication ceremony for that same Sunday.
